For centuries the home to Parisian aristocracy, the Marais is very centrally located on the right bank of the Seine and spans the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Today, it is one of the capital's most desirable districts to call home – and with its mix of twisting little streets, ancient squares, historic buildings and lively bars and restaurants it is not hard to see why. This area allows a visitor to step back in Parisian history simply by roaming the quaint neighborhood. The smell of the freshly baked challah from the Pletzl, Paris' Jewish Quarter, wafts over the cobblestoned streets. Do not miss a stroll round the majestic Place des Vosges or the Musée Picasso. All of Paris is accessible from this special apartment. As an added treat, just a few blocks away, you will find one of the best Parisian pastry shops - La République Pâtissière.
In an ideal layout, the two bedrooms are at completely opposite side of the apartment - perfect for those needing their own space and looking for privacy. One bedroom is overlooking the street (queen bed) while the 2nd bedroom (king or twin beds) is overlooking an interior courtyard. The salon, or living room, is spacious and lined in charming bookshelves. The dining table is connected to the salon that also includes a fireplace and large windows. The street, rue du Perche, is a one-way road and quiet during the day and night, the apartment itself is well isolated. There are 2 bathrooms, one has a shower and the second one has a bathtub. There are two separate toilets, one near the entrance, one near the bathroom with the bathtub. There is also a sofa bed in the salon that sleeps one person.
